Q1. It is thought that a high protein diet slows tumour growth and prevents cancer Initiation. An experiment was conducted to test the effect of a high protein diet versus a low protein diet on tumour weight for 20 mice. Two groups of ten laboratory mice with cancer were selected for experimentation. One group was fed a low protein diet whist the other group were fed a high protein diet for the duration of the experiment. Dataset Q1_14_15.xlsx contains the data obtained for tumour weight (in grams) of the 20 mice at the end of the experiment.
